FREMONT Premiers at the 57th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival


Despite flying under the radar at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW, Fremont has managed to get brilliant reviews and will officially get its global premiere at the 57th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

Directed by Babak Jalali and co-written by Carolina Cavalli, Fremont follows a lonely Afghan refugee who works at a fortune cookie factory in California after having served as a translator for US troops in Afghanistan.

Tomris Laffly from Variety said, “You go in reluctant and even skeptical, and come out wondering how and why you’re moved to tears.” Read more here.

Babak Jalali and Carolina Cavalli are represented by Hannah Boulton at The Agency.
